Written in this remarkable book is how one, in our technological and tax paying society, can rediscover a method of getting in contact with the spirits of the beginning; what Native Americans called `The Unseen.' The way the author found her ability to conscious dreaming and mastering her dreams is astonishing. She shows the reader a road to reach the final total of one's own Self. In this manner one discovers that he himself or she herself is a creator of two separate realities, the boundless unknown of dreaming and creativity and the reality of the material world. -- Dick de Soeten Author of: When the tortoise dies, The epic of the Iroquois Confederacy
The Sorcerer's Dream is full of wonderful perspective changes between urban existence, the dream world, the burgeoning love, the distant teacher Vidar and the impulsive and independent Dreamshield. The journey to the second reality is exciting, challenging and confrontational. -- Weed Magazine (Dutch Magazine)
In The Sorcerer's Dream the author describes her learningproces from mastering dreams, the contact with her totem or power animals, the travel between the realities and finding the ultimate knowledge. - MSc. O. Bachnoe -- Msc. O. Bachnoe, Library service, The Netherlands
It was a wonderful trip, written as one long dream, I actually wanted to read the book without interruption, instead of in parts. -- Carmen Xanjust, Foundation In Between (for Cleargreen USA)
Braceau is not just some naive dabbler who stumbled on shamanism during a quickie retreat. The double role of telling a good yarn and telling the reader how to make a good yarn of his/her own is part of this literary tradition. Joseph Campbell would have been proud. --Paula R. Stiles, Innsmouth Free Press
Dreamshield has an engaging narrative style and tells stories that are engrossing. There is a lack of literature on female sorcerers and this book makes an admirable effort to fill this lacuna. When, at the end, she attains "totality," the reader will share her exaltation. --Anthropology of Consciousness and Association for Humanistic Psychology-Perspective, Stanley Krippner, Ph.D. Alan Watts Profess of Psychology, Saybrook University.
From the Author
About this first publication the author says: The theme of these passed four-and-a-half years have been the sorcerers tradition. "I have carefully recorded my personal experiences which has finally led to this book. Apart from that, writing it has given me great pleasure. The Sorcerer's Dream has become more than a personal account because the interested reader is presented with the technique to learn and practice the North American tradition of the Art of Dreaming (the skill of conscious dreaming) him/herself."
